“The purpose of life is not to be happy. It is to be useful, honorable, to be compassionate, to have it make some difference that you have lived and lived well… To know that even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded.” ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson from The Selected Writings of Ralph Waldo Emerson

Wise, go with the flow, seeking external validation, sets one up for external judgement for validation of themselves. Answers are within. One’s ideal state is realized and felt when one is on the divine path, the train track, a direct telephone line to the Supreme Being, Brahma, GOD, Buddha, whomever is the preference and feels a sense of fulfillment of the purpose for which he is born. All that is required is that man live in accordance with his own nature.

“There should be no distasteful tasks in one’s life. If you just hate to do a thing, that hatred for it develops body-destructive toxins, and you become fatigued very soon. You must love anything you must do. Do it not only cheerfully, but also lovingly and the very best way you know how. That love of the work which you must do anyhow will vitalize your body and keep you from fatigue.” ~ Walter Russell, “The Man who tapped the secrets of the Universe”
Do what you love and love what you do.

“When you are inspired by some great purpose, some extraordinary project, all your thoughts break their bonds; Your mind transcends limitations, your consciousness expands in every direction, and you find yourself in a new great and wonderful world. Dormant forces, faculties and talents become alive, and you discover yourself to be a greater person by far than you ever dreamed yourself to be.” ~Patanjali
“Your heart can never be rejected, your projections and expectations can, however be rejected or denied” ~ Faith Martin
